As Christ adhered to the Father, without doubt so must we despite the seeming “prosperity of the sinner” (Gradual).
The long Gospel enables us, as it were, to be eyewitnesses of Christ’s Passion and Death, revealing His Love “unto the end” on Calvary.
This Sunday: The liturgy of this Sunday is divided as follows:
(1) Blessing of Palms;
(2) Distribution of Palms to clergy and people;
